Our pet parenting program is offered to interim shelters, day centers and permanent housing.
Our PalsNPets Education is a 8 week program that maximizes on the innate affection people have for pets as a vehicle for encouraging character development. It builds on the shared love of pets to create connections among individuals who might not otherwise expect to get along.
In our sessions, individuals are inspired to share security and positivity pets have brought to their lives. This approach encourages social interactions, self-expression, the sharing of opinions, and the development of empathy. Simply by attending each week and spending time sitting, listening, asking questions, and engaging, the program fosters a sense of motivation. Positive behaviors, life skills, and connections are quickly forged within this open and receptive atmosphere… And all because people drop their barriers when talking, learning, or listening about the animals they love!
